HP laserjet 3055 toner is fine but print blank pages except the test page,. Copies fine too from the glass

Try the following
1. Ensure that the driver is not currupted and is compatible with your operating system.
2. Try changing the connecting cable.
3. Try connecting the device thru both the ports (one by one) USB & LAN. (The driver will have to be loaded for each port).
3. Connect device to a different PC.
4. Download fresh driver compatible to your operating system from HP Support.
5. Perform a NVRM re-set (all stored data will be lost). (refer my solutions available on this forum).

Best wishes

79 service 9208

I'm sure that by now you power cycled the printer.
Print something from a different application. If you are trying to print a Word document and it is getting the 79 error, try printing something from your email. If that works try the failing app again. If it still fails you might have to reinstall the software. Try a different cable from printer to PC. If you can, try a parallel cable instead of a LAN cable. If you are using a JetDirect, remove it and try a cold reset.

Try connecting this printer to a different network wall point in the building. If still no change then move back to original wall point and try changing the connection at the Switch end in the comms room.

If still having problems then try pinging the printer to see if it gives time out or execessively high pings. Got a PC on the network and in windows open a "command" prompt and type ping -t XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX where the address of the printer should be place of the x's.

If linux open a console and type the same thing ping -t XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX.

Flaws at top of each page when printing

Replace toner cartridge drum is scratched

(Possibly by staple going threw machine if that what each of the five marks look like, all those removed staples always seem to end up in printers)


You can pull it out (I think right top cover opens and cartridge pulls up and to the right)  then .. turn it over and gently pull back cover see drum has same marks as you see on paper, you can gently rotate drum by using gear on edge do not force it only turns easy one way, Do not touch drum surface very delicate and sensitive. Normal disposable item buy a New cartridge here is HP part number for your model  HP C8543X (HP 43X) Toner Cart.
